San Jose, CA, January 09, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- SunPods Inc., a company delivering modular, fully integrated and tested solar power generation systems to customer sites, has announced that Bill Kammerer has joined SunPods as CEO effective 1/1/10.
“As we saw interest in SunPods explode, it became clear that we needed a CEO with the right Silicon Valley experience to build the company. Bill has had a hand in building two Silicon Valley success stories: salesforce.com and Cisco. In both cases he was involved in helping the companies set up internal operations and financial structures for partners. As SunPods grows, we look to his experience to expand our manufacturing facilities and grow our sales channel through partnerships with suppliers and capital equipment financing groups” Dan Jaeger, President and co-founder, explained. “We had to find the right person,” added Michael Gumm, EVP and co-founder. “Dan and I have been in the solar business for a long time and we understand what it takes to build a reliable and cost effective product. But in this market having a great product is not enough. Organizations want to incorporate renewable energy into their operations but they’ve had to go out and search for their own financing. We will rely on Bill’s expertise as we build relationships with 3rd party financing partners. Innovative 3rd party financing programs for our customers will be key to our success.”
Bill continues, “Like other Silicon Valley executives I know, I wanted to be part of the green revolution. I took some time after salesforce.com to learn more about the renewable energy market, even working pro-bono for two organizations: The FIT Coalition and Grid Alternatives. I have become increasingly convinced that there is a tremendous opportunity to do good by marrying the innovations of people like Dan and Michael with high tech business practices. When I saw SunPods, and came to understand the exciting innovation it represents, I knew I wanted to be a part of the team.”
